Version Split-Screen is Now Available

Reviewing and comparing different versions of files can be a hassle if you can't see them side by side. That is why we have now implemented a split-screen review option that allows you to compare different video versions side by side. This is done by clicking the version selector and then "Compare".
Both videos are synchronized, so there is no need to do anything manually. In a team review session you can synchronize the playhead between all users. Meaning side by side comparison of assets where all instances are synced remotely. In conclusion, everything is synced.
Each video is provided with a version selector of its own, so that you can switch between different versions however you want. Some prefer to have the newer version on the right, while others prefer the left.
Now you might be asking, "Why is this useful?" Let me tell you a little bit about our use cases:
Use Case: TV, Film, and Ads
In early production stages, where there is a lot of raw material to plummet through, you can compare retakes side by side so you can more easily pick the best one!
During post production, you can for example compare different colour gradings and VFX shots. Split-screen makes it way easier to see what has improved or what needs more tweaking.
All in all, the addition of split-screen makes it easier than ever for those working with moving images (and images) to review and make decisions about which version of a video to use. Try it out!
Use Case: Gaming
Comparing different versions of cutscenes and recorded 3D animations. Upload a new version, click compare, and viola!
Thanks to KLASH's sync feature and file selector, you get a simple and straightforward way of reviewing an artist's works side by side. You can use split-screen to review the different versions and leave feedback accordingly, and you don't need to switch back and forth between files. It saves a lot of time in what is usually a tight schedule in game development.
Whether these review sessions are remote, over the shoulder, live, or offline, the split-screen tool can be used in any workflow for game companies. Try it out!
There is even more coming
If you found all of this interesting, then we have even more awesome comparison tools coming up. In a future update, you will be able to see the exact differences between two videos thanks to the KLASH comparison algorithm. All you will have to do then is flick a switch, and the UI will display the differences between two videos, down to the very pixel. You will be able to see a red overlay covering the areas where something was either changed, added, or removed, and the timeline will show you exactly where these differences occur.
